The Tastiest Chocolate Brownies You’ll Ever Have…FACT!

I’ve always been a fan of brownies and have tasted a fair few in my time…some were deliciously rich and others were dismal and disappointing after taking that mouth-watering first bite.

A few weeks ago however, I tried some brownies that a friend of a friend had made…and all I can say is WOW! I admit, we’d all had a few glasses of wine but one taste of her brownies and I was in love! There were honestly the best brownies I had ever eaten..so moist and chocolatey with a hint of nuttiness; the perfect consistency!

So after telling a number of people how amazing they were (on the night and days after) I decided that I needed this recipe and had to attempt to make them!

To my surprise it was easier than I thought, and by now you should know that I like nothing more than a simple recipe with lots of taste!

So, now I share with you the best chocolate brownie recipe you will ever find!! Try it and tell me if I’m wrong!!

You will need:

185g unsalted butter
185g dark chocolate
3 large eggs
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
250g caster sugar
115g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
150g chopped walnuts

First things first you need to get the trusted greaseproof paper out! Line a tin roughly 9 inches by 9 inches and then preheat the oven to 180 degrees/gas mark 4.

Grab a saucepan and melt the butter and chocolate together (easy enough right?).

Now get a small mixing bowl and whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence together.

In another larger bowl measure out the flour and add the salt (still easy isn’t it!).

When chocolate buttery mixture has melted and looks good enough to drink, let it cool a little and then beat in the sugary egg mixture a little bit at a time.

Then you add the finishing touches the nuts and flour.

Beat for a while until smooth. (This is probably the hardest bit, if you can call it hard!) A little reminder to remember to use a sieve when putting the flour in as you don’t want the mixture to be all lumpy and horrible!

Now you can scrape the chocolatey goodness into the lined tin and bake for about 25 mins.

This mixture was so good that I totally licked the bowl and tried to get as much chocolate in my mouth as possible whilst waiting for the brownies to cook!

The top should go a sort of pale brown speckle so don’t worry it does look a bit strange at first but that’s what gives the brownies their uniqueness! The best bit is that the middle stays dense and gooey still.

Keep checking on your brownies as ovens can behave differently, changing how long they need to be cooked for – the last thing you want is for them to go dry and horrible like so many brownies I’ve tasted before!

I assure you these brownies are the nuts!! I took them into work as a little treat and everyone really loved them, try them for yourself and see!
